May 25: All Eyes On BlackRock Protest NYC

blackrockalleyes

Join CODEPINK in an "All Eyes on BlackRock" protest on May 25, 2021, at 11:30 AM at BlackRock's office at 45 E 51st Street. CODEPINK has an ongoing campaign urging BlackRock to divest from all weapon manufacturers; however, this year, we also ask that BlackRock support human rights for this shareholder season. 

WHEN: Tuesday, May 25th at 11:30AM

WHERE: BlackRock NYC Office, 45 E 51st, New York, NY 10055

BlackRock, the world's largest asset management company, released a statement indicating that it would like companies to implement and disclose their human rights processes to identify, manage, and prevent adverse human rights impacts. 

CODEPINK highlighted three proposals about human rights and nuclear weapons filed by faith-based investors represented by Investor Advocates for Social Justice. Proposals with Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, and PNC Bank will go to a vote at shareholder meetings this spring. As a top ten shareholder in all three companies, BlackRock can play an essential role in leveraging its power by voting to support these resolutions. 

Even though BlackRock said it would like companies to implement human rights processes, they continue to profit from war. BlackRock even has an iShares fund that exclusively benefits from weapons of war. We call on BlackRock to hold themselves accountable and demonstrate their commitment to human rights by voting yes on the resolutions. Currently, we have generated over 2 thousand emails asking them to do so. Now, we can take our message directly to BlackRock on May 25, and we hope you can join us. 

The May 25 protest will practice COVID safe measures by providing hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and masks. We'll also encourage social distancing.
